Week 18 - Emilíana Torrini.
I love good story telling and many of the musicians and songs I love usually spins a good yarn. This song by the Icelandic singer Emilíana Torrini tells a beautiful one and when I first heard it, I wished that I had written it! The challenge of covering this particular song was how to make it our own. Luckily Rebekah had a brilliant idea of bringing in a trumpet. I really love how it came out.
Emilíana Torrini has released many albums and has done some interested collaborations with the likes of Thievery Corporation and Kylie Minogue. If you are Lord of the Ring’s fan, she’s the singer that sang “Gollum’s Song.”
